Gurda Tango Boutique Hotel
Ranked #265 of 443 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed 8 May 2012

This is a lovely hotel that's near to many things. There were police patrols in the neighborhood so it felt safe enough. Loved the decor in the room. Wi-fi is reliable. We asked if there was a computer for public use as we needed to do some things that could not be done on our iPhones, and Mariano (not sure if his name is spelt correctly) kindly offered his personal laptop for us to use. He was also really helpful with a ton of other things!
He also tried to get us the name of the place where we could buy leather jackets at local prices but unfortunately we didn't stay long enough in BA to go there. In the end, i bought a great, affordable leather jacket from Murillo :)) Get there by the subte, many shops, wide variety.
Another staff on the morning shift (Karina) was also very helpful. All in all, this hotel has really nice and genuinely warm staff who want to make u feel welcome and at ease in Buenos Aires. It certainly deserves the great ratings that it has received!

Our room, Malbec, was large, cool and quiet. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast great, the room overlooked the local park . Within walking distance of the centre and La Boca.

The room was small but clean and nicely decorated. The staff were wonderful. They helped to arrange tours and gave great information and directions. They let us stay late as we had an evening flight out. The location was good as it provides easy access to the San Telmo shopping markets on the weekends. In short it's a very good place but the staff make it great.

We spent 4 nights at Gurda Tango in February 2012 - we had a lovely stay. They upgraded us to their junior suite - one of 7 rooms in this old San Telmo mansion. The room was large by Buenos Aires standards - with a relatively large closet and bathroom. A little sparsely decorated, but very clean and well air conditioned. The location was excellent - at the corner of the large park in the neighborhood. It was a few blocks from the Dorrego Plaza - perfect for the Sunday morning antiques fair. Also, the staff was fantastic - helpful, friendly, and flexible!

Our only issue was a very weak internet connection in our room, but we could easily get it in the lobby!

Thank you Gurda Tango!

Karina Mecca (general manager) and her colleagues Norma, Caroline & Rosia showed my wife & me terrific hospitality and warmth during our stay. They single-handedly turned what started out as a potentially disastrous stay in Buenos Aires into a simply wonderful few days. We had reserved at another B&B, but unbeknownst to us a few days before our arrival water pipes burst and made our accommodations unusable (the B&B emailed us, but we were on a cruise and had poor access to email). That B&B (Juan, Jose & Marcela at Home San Telmo) was very helpful in assisting us in securing alternate accommodations. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and helpful set of hosts at Gurda Tango. And when our flight home was unexpectedly canceled, requiring us to stay an extra day for a late-evening flight the following day (and miss Thanksgiving back home), they were exceptionally kind to allow us to stay in the room into the evening on that last extended day without charging us an extra fee for a (very) late checkout.

We just loved walking through the park outside the hotel. It was always filled with many different people and activities, and the weather was beautiful with its warm breezes. A local bus route has a stop right outside the hotel.

Karina will refer you to good area restaurants - we had a wonderful late lunch at 1880 Restaurant the afternoon of our last day. Our steaks - and everything else - were terrific. Lots of good wine - and very inexpensive compared to the US! The car that Karina arranged to pick us up for our trip to the airport also worked out very well.

The Gurda is not a luxury property, but it is clean & comfortable, well-priced, well-located, and above all has great hosts in Karina & her colleagues.

The hop-on/hop-off bus is very good, gives you a nice tour of the city.

We found Buenos Aires to be a lovely city and have told all our friends & family they should visit - and stay with Karina! Other than nasty traffic (worse than Boston!), everything was great. We especially loved all the parks and green space there.

Room Tip: Karina will take care of you. Beds are comfortable, showers very good (we stayed in 2 different roo...

The staff at this small hotel is fantastic. We had a late night flight departing from B.A. on the day we checked out. They let us keep our luggage in the room that day (and take showers) without charging us anything. If you want to stay in an inner city hotel and not pay a fortune, this is a good choice. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are quiet, and there are excellent restaurants nearby. We had a double and a single room, and one room was spotless while the other wasn't quite as clean. That is my only complaint. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is a great value and a very comfortable place to stay.
